bogus gas error messages

Trying to compile libunwind, I'm now getting these error messages:

  ia64-test-readonly-asm.S:37: Error: Operand 2 to .spillreg must be a
writable register

These are bogus errors in my opinion and should be removed.  For
example, we already commonly use "saves" to r0 to terminate the
call-chain.  I'm seeing this with gas v2.17, but it may have been
around for longer.
